As far as I am aware this site is not owned by Gallan, they simply run the car park. Confusingly Gallan are both a developer in their own right owning Upper Dean Street and St Georges (opposite JL) and also an independent car park operator for their own land and other developer's stalled sites.

That was from years ago, hopefully with the completion of New Street, Hill Street will get some extra developments including this.

It has been like this since the 1980s, I'm sure there used to be a pub on this site.

Well we had to keep some of his buildings. Probably one of the better ones.

Hope that this will trigger more Bradford Street, Digbeth redevelopment:

Works starts on Harrison Drape regeneration

Quote:
Former curtain factory in Digbeth is being brought back to life as an apartment complex which is due to finished by the end of 2016



Work has started on a bringing a historic former factor in Digbeth back to life as a ú30 million mixed-use complex.

Colmore Tang Construction is creating a residential-led scheme in the former Harrison Drape curtain factory, in Bradford Street.

The two-acre development, which is owned by its sister company, the property investor Seven Capital, will comprise 73 studios, 152 one-bedroom and 88 two-bedroom flats as well as a 2,420 sq ft retail unit, parking and landscaping.

It has created work for 200 staff and 30 sub-contractors and is due to be finished by the end of 2016, benefiting from its close proximity to Bullring, Moor Street Station and the planned High Speed 2 terminal in Curzon Street.

Construction director Andy Conroy said: "We are really excited to be starting work on the Harrison Drape project, a key milestone in the regeneration of the Digbeth area.

"The old curtain factory has a great legacy with the local community and we wanted to make sure we maintained as much of the original features as possible to preserve its heritage.

"As a result, we are retaining the fašade of the building which will be converted into 118 apartments, a combination of studio and one and two beds.

"The remaining 195 apartments will be split across the three new blocks we are building."

Will the UK's gas holders be missed?

Gas holders helped warm the UK's homes for decades. But now they are being removed, with the National Grid saying land is being "redeveloped and given back to communities". Will these sentinels of the industrial age be missed?
It mentions that demolition of the Washwood Heath gas holders will begin in February and completed by Christmas, and that the rehabilitation of the Kings Cross ones would be impossible anywhere else due to cost

I wish Seven Capital would take ahold of the other old warehouses on Bradford St too - next door to Harrison Drape is another large one as well as the 1930s ones at the top opposite Bradford Court. Oh and those Georgian townhouses in Balsall Heath and the old tram garage.
